Attention Power Customers!

At least once each day, I pick up the phone to hear that loud announcement. I am on the “Do Not Call” list, but when you are a business owner your number is in so many places that it makes no difference. I receive this recorded call two or three times a day. I have even listened to the long, boring message so I could remove myself from their list. I selected “9” as the message advised, but that was weeks ago, and the calls have not stopped. I receive many out-of-State calls every day, so I pick up most calls when my phone rings. This particular harassing solicitor uses a different phone number each time, so my reports to the Federal Trade Commission don’t really help. I do not have time to report it every time they call so I can provide another phone number. This is only one of many recorded calls I receive daily. I know I could allow them to go to voice mail, but it takes less time to pick up the phone and hang it up as soon as I hear the recording begin than it does to dial in to pick up my voice mail messages. Because I market my name, business and phone number in so many places on the Internet, I receive a ridiculous number of calls daily. I “loved” the one from my previous phone company (who I left only a couple weeks ago) trying to sell me on their service. I tried to be polite and just say “no thanks,” but when she became downright pushy, I hung up on her. I have learned that when I pick up the phone and greet the caller, if there is a pause, it will be a recorded call. I don’t wait for them to begin speaking. I thought I was so smart when I looked at my caller ID a couple days ago before picking up the phone and saw it was coming from an 866 number. I didn’t pick it up, assuming it would be a solicitor. Nope. The voice mail message was from my doctor’s office calling with test results for which I’d been waiting. Darn. So I had to call them back and leave them another message. We cannot be sure that an 800 or 866 number is a solicitor. Since most of my true business calls come from names and numbers I do not know, using caller ID is not helpful unless it shows a business name. I have never wanted to get my own 800 number, because for a home business, I think it is impersonal. I want my prospective team members to know that I work at home. I guess I have ranted and raved long enough. If you have found an effective solution to this problem, I’d love to hear it. ****************************************** To learn about the Xpress Healthcare Business Opportunity, please visit http://joinxpresshealthcare.com To learn how to reduce your health and dental costs and save on hearing, vision, roadside assistance and much more, please visit http://ibourl.net/XpressSavings
